Website of the Day: My Virtual Model

Dec 11 2007 - 1:00pm

If you're in the market for a site that combines personalized avatars, fashion, decor and a geek-chic take on shopping, check out My Virtual Model [1].

The site offers virtual changing rooms and simulators for home decorating — its dressing-room and My Fit features enable consumers to "try on" clothes from stores like H&M on the Internet. The concept is the perfect addition to H&M's high-tech service that allows consumers to make purchases with their cell phones [2]. While I wouldn't trust it to find clothes that suit my body type, I'm intrigued by the idea of a more personal, online shopping experience.

All you have to do is pick an avatar that looks like you — or even upload your own headshot to an avatar's body for extreme personalization — and select certain fashions for the virtual dressing room feature.
